Venting the hot air from 'Electrikit' converted Aga range cookers

 

No flue is required for a converted cooker but although 'Electrikit' converted cookers can be room vented, it is after all just hot air!, we strongly reccommend external venting of the ovens. When you cook quite a bit of steam is created and when room vented it condenses quickly and can look unsightly. Far better to externally vent it!

If we are leaving the cooker 'in-situ' then we can vent the ovens into the existing flue. This saves you the bother and cost of having it removed which can be substantial. If we are relocating your cooker for you then it is best placed on an outside wall and we can vent it as shown below. It's a simple copper pipe going straight out the back - no flue through the roof required! 

You can see in the first picture a 28mm copper pipe exits the rear left corner of the top oven. With two 90 degree angles it then exits directly out the wall behind the cooker. We are not builders so cannot prepare the hole for the pipe. It needs to be 30-32mm in diameter and located behind the flue shroud. This is 851mm high from the base of the cooker (not the floor as it may include a plinth of varying height) and 520mm from the left hand side. We'll chat to your and/or your builder directly about this before we come! 

The second picture shows the exterior view. The pipe has a further 90 degree angle to prevent water and wind ingress and is protected in this case by a mesh cover (not supplied).
